This gorgeous Ognissanti Standing Crucifix is an artistic rendering of the crucifix that hangs in the nave of the Chiesa di Ognissanti (All Saints Church), a Franciscan church in Florence Italy. The original crucifix stands15 feet tall and was painted by 14th century master Renaissance artist, Giotto. The crucifix painting was recently restored to its original glory and moved from the sacristy to the nave in 2010. The Ognissanti Crucifix is known for it's realistic detail which was novel at the time of its painting. "What he did had never been done before," says Marco Ciatti, the head restorer. "He [Giotto] was the first here to create a naturalistic human style of Christ on the cross, showing the pain, the man. Until Giotto, Christ was portrayed in a more stylised way. Giotto heralded a revolution in art." Now you can display a rendition of this important piece of Catholic art history in your home. On each end of the crucifix is an icon: The Virgin Mary on the left, John the Evangelist on the right, and Christ the Pantocrator at the top. A beautiful and unique crucifix from the popular Joseph Studio collection.
